Unread. In a clear protective Brodart mylar cover. Walter Mosley offers another novel of hardboiled mystery and takes the reader back before the events chronicled in Devil in the Blue Dress, his first Easy Rawlins mystery. The time is 1939 and the place is Houston, where Easy and his friend Mouse set out to Texas to retrieve money from Mouse's father. A hardboiled mixture of death, revenge, sex and voodoo await them on their trip. A tiny nickj to front flap and dj on edge of rear board. Bookseller Inventory # 1001005
Synopsis: A prequel to the Easy Rawlins mystery series finds a nineteen-year-old Ezekiel "Easy" Rawlins and his companion, Raymond "Mouse" Alexander, on a perilous 1939 odyssey that takes them from Houston to a mysterious bayou world of voodoo, sex, revenge, and death. 150,000 first printing. $150,000 ad/promo.

Review: Gone Fishin' actually marks the first appearance of Ezekiel "Easy" Rawlins, as well as his homicide-prone sidekick Raymond "Mouse" Alexander. But the story takes place in 1939, when both protagonists are still living in Houston. This is no tightly plotted mystery, but an atmospheric coming-of-age story, which gives the reluctant Easy an education in sex and death, family and forgiveness. As always, Mosley's prose is a marvel: musical, funny, and full of no-frills lyricism. And the unfolding of Easy's character is every bit as gripping as the breakneck plotting of the later installment.
